- Due to a change in the execution of the project (such as a result of a merger or acquisition) there may be a necessary requirement to completely re-design a control panel for the project with a rapidly approaching on stream date. If the necessary engineering resources are not available to accomplish the task in a short time frame (read immediate) then the project gets delayed. At Syrinx we will use the already produced documents and drawing packages of the project (such as P&IDs and project specifications) and will produce a new control panel layout for the designers to implement in their Computer Assisted Design system of choice. They can then immediately begin producing Issued For Fabrication drawings and procuring new equipment.
- A late change in the design scope of a project can alter the way a facility is to operate. This may require a completely new direction in operating and a new and completely different shutdown philosophy. This situation can be made even worse if the project is already well into construction and commissioning. In these cases where an immediate requirement to implement a new shutdown philosophy exists, we are able to provide programming code for the new shutdown philosophy for the programmer or for the field to implement almost as soon as the shutdown key is published IFC.
Here are some Excel® tools immediately available to assist with your projects.

There may be instances where an equation to better represent an installed valve is preferable to best fit slope equations. In our experience fourth order equations can pretty much handle any type of real world behaviour. We have provided an example of using the least squares method to generate a fourth-order equation to represent a valve (or anything that exists as an X-Y graph, for that matter).
The only inputs required are the various flow versus open-percentage data points (set the valve at a desired position and record the flow). You can also use characteristic data points provided by the manufacturer.
